    Have you ever tried to throw away a trash can?

    Seems a silly question but can be quite a problem since the trash pickup tends to see them as useful no matter how bad they look. It took three weeks for me to get rid of a worn out trash can once. Tonight as I went for my evening walk I found someone who had a great solution I wish I'd thought of. A simple note taped to the bottom of an upside down can that read, "Take me please." What experiences have you had with this odd situation?

    Yes, I did try to throw out trash cans once when we were moving.  I finally had to run out and catch the trashmen and ask them to take my trash cans away.  I wish I had thought if the note idea!

    It depends on what they are made of - if they are made of plastic, I would try cutting it into pieces.  If it is metal, I would see if I could jump on it to crush it enough that it would fit into another garbage can that you aren't getting rid of.
